Air Source Heat Pumps Course

Heat Pumps Course Overview

This renewable energy course from the Plumbing Academy is designed to provide you with the knowledge and specific skill set required to correctly install ground source and air source heat pumps. These heat pumps extract the heat from either the air or earth below cheaply and efficiently, while not polluting the air as they do not require external venting.

The ground and air source heat pumps course explores how a ground source heat pump works, principles and components, insulation, heat loss and the effect of heating system design. It has also been developed in conjunction with the Heat Pump Association with the intention that the training course is recognised as demonstrating competence for the Micro-generation scheme.

Train with us today and put yourself ahead of the competition in the new and rapidly growing market of ground and air source heat pumps.
